The Electric Egg

Formed at the end of 1993, The Electric Egg basically consisted of either Peter Bisschop’s songs accompanied by a hippie rock and folk band, or the group completely freaking out in jams and improvisations.

After an acid-induced rehearsal, the band ceased to exist for Harm decided to take it slow and relax for a while at his parent’s farm to start a new band: Friction

Personnel

  • Peter Bisschop – vocals, guitar, bugel.
  • Harm Wierda – organs, bg vocals.
  • Martijn Grit – bass, bg vocals.
  • Michel van Kerkhof – drums, bg vocals.
  • Jacco Kleingeld – violin, tin whistle.

Wierda Trio

The Wierda Trio was formed in 2009, originally with Marieke Schwarzenberg on drums. After a few performances, Victor de Boo replaced Marieke.

The first formal presentation was on december 30 2009 in Grand Theatre in Groningen. Currently (2011), the Trio is a bit inactive because the individual members are busy working on other projects.

Visit the WierdaTrio on myspace to see the videos of the concert.

Personnel

  • Harm Wierda – vocals, organs, guitar.
  • Arno Bakker – sousaphone
  • Victor de Boo – drums.

Arno Bakker has performed with Harm as EE33 on some occasions, exploring more experimental sounds.
